Nothing was done and to make good his boast, another bomb has once again been detonated in the same city.

This is beyond ordinary. Many people have lost their lives. Will somebody still go to dance in Kano tomorrow and tell us that all is well? Or are we going to have truly leadership? See more photos below...

see HOW Politicians Deepen Ties Through Marriage ...10 examples

Marriage, to many people, stands for different things. Just as some believe it is the union of man and woman in wedlock, others believe it goes beyond joining two consenting adults together. This is why such people, when it comes to celebrating the joint union, always want to leave a record to prove that their celebration was the best ever.

But in spite of the fact that “the best-ever wedding in town” doesn’t exist, many are falling over each other to make sure theirs is the talk of the town.

My Mother, Her Life, Her Legacy,..TRIBUTE BY Bola Ahmed TINUBU

My mother, (Maa’mi) Hajia Abibatu Mogaji, has passed. But it is so obvious from the outpouring of emotions across Nigeria and beyond that Mama lives. God blessed her with 96 plus years on earth. But she was not great because of her longevity. For, it is not how long one lives but how well.

But Mama used every minute of her sojourn on earth wisely and well. My mother lived a long, fruitful life that benefited all who were fortunate enough to come into contact with her. Everywhere she went and everything she touched, she left better than she found them. She added and never subtracted. She made and never destroyed.
